Kim Possible Live Action Movie

Kim Possible

Two original animated movies, 87 episodes, and 16 years later, we’re thrilled to see our high school heroes Kim Possible and Ron Stoppable again in this live-action movie. The same creators of the animated series—Mark McCorkle and Robert Schooley—are working their magic once again to write the live-action movie script, along with Josh Cagan. It’s executive produced by McCorkle, Schooley, and Zanne Devine, and co-directed and co-produced by Adam B. Stein and Zach Lipovsky. Here’s what Disney Channels Worldwide executive vice president Adam Bonnett has to say about this creative dream team:

Mark and Bob created an enduring character and kids all over the world found a friend in her, an average girl who just happens to spend her off-school hours thwarting evil villains. Although Kim Possible ‘can do anything,’ kids and tweens found that this animated redhead was just like them. As we embark on the fun challenge of making Kim and Ron fully dimensional, I’m thrilled to be working again with Mark and Bob and to welcome the addition of a dynamic creative team – Josh, Zanne, Adam and Zach – into a world where anything is indeed possible.

The television series originally aired June 7, 2002 to September 7, 2007. According to its Wiki Page, The show revolves around eponymous high school student Kim Possible. Kim is tasked with fighting crime on a regular basis while coping with everyday issues commonly associated with adolescence. Kim is aided by her clumsy best friend and sidekick Ron Stoppable, his pet naked mole rat Rufus and 10 year-old computer genius Wade. Known collectively as Team Possible, the majority of Kim and Ron’s missions require them to thwart the evil plans of mad scientist–supervillain duo Dr. Drakken and his sidekick Shego, but they occasionally encounter other enemies as well.”

“Based on the series, the Kim Possible World Showcase Adventure was an interactive attraction that took place in several of Epcot’s World Showcase pavilions in Walt Disney World. The attraction is an electronic scavenger hunt that has guests using special “Kimmunicators” (in actuality, modified cell phones) to help Kim Possible and Ron Stoppable solve a “crime” or disrupt an evil-doer’s “plans for global domination.” The “Kimmunicator” is able to trigger specific events within the pavilion grounds that provide clues to completing the adventure. Launched in January 2009 and presented by Verizon Wireless, the Adventure was included in park admission.”
